Cameras captured the exact moment when a 76-year-old man lost control of the vehicle and crossed an intersection before hitting a wall and falling into a stream in Bairro Fonte Grande, in Contagem, in the Metropolitan Region of Belo Horizonte. The accident at the end of the morning of this Saturday (4/12) resulted in the death of the driver.
Saveiro even occupies the other side of the stream, on a lawn, but already upside down, it turns again and, finally, falls into the stream. The runner who had his life saved in a matter of seconds, wearing a white tank top, returns to the frame filmed by the camera and despairs when he sees the scene.
Another camera also caught the accident:
When the first relief teams arrived, Nilvado Eustquio Vaz de Melo still had vital signs. However, authorities did not even have time to remove him from the wreckage and shortly afterwards the death was found, still on the spot.
Then firefighters arrived to remove the body. “The difficulty at the site was that the victim was under the vehicle. We needed to raise the vehicle to be able to remove the victim”, explains Lieutenant Leonardo Botelho.
Officials suspect the elderly man has had some harm in advancing the crossing the way he did. When questioned, the victim’s son stated that the father did not have any serious illness.
